Friday again! Have a happy and safe long weekend - unless you're in QLD and WA, in which case, have a happy and safe normal weekend. :)

Retro Gaming June 2024 (0 Comments) (link)
 Tuesday, 4-June-2024  15:53:38 (GMT +10) - by MUTMAN

This month's "Retro Let's Play" for June is Silent Hill from 1999
Follow Harry Mason as he searches for his missing adopted daughter in the mysterious New England town of Silent Hill. Stumbling upon a cult conducting a ritual to revive a deity it worships, Harry discovers his daughter's true origin. Multiple game endings are possible, depending on in-game actions taken by the player.
A constant slow reveal, the unshakeable atmosphere of "what's around the next corner??". Along with the visual fog, and the audio design, it's very atmospheric.

Just spotted this in the forums.

Located in Radford Junior School Hall will be the Canberra Vintage Computer Exhibition 2024!

This year take a walk decade by decade to see iconic machines from the 1960s to the early 2000s! All functional (handle with care) and running games and software from their respective eras! There will also be modern enhancements on some machines. See what the passionate maker community are doing the enhance these machines today! This year we'll also have game consoles, DooM deathmatch LAN, and music composition running on period and modern systems!

Entry is free, but if you'd like to help us cover some of the costs a donation at the door would be greatly appreciated. We hope to see you there! Spread the word! Keep an eye on our page for updates as we get closer to the event. If you'd like to participate/exhibit or volunteer to assist, get in touch.

There's an event in Facebook here, otherwise more info in the thread. I'm hoping to go along and take some photos. If you see me, say hi!
